Scheme for development of colony parks revised

Staff Reporter

MCD increases funds for implementing the plan


‘The scheme first introduced in 2005 was a failure as it had too many riders’

‘After every five months an inspection of parks would be carried out’


NEW DELHI: Given the poor response to the Municipal Corporation of Delhi’s original scheme for development of colony parks in co-operation with the residents’ welfare associations under the public private partnership model, the civic body has now decided to revise the scheme by increasing the funds available to the RWAs and providing them additional benefits for implementing the plan.

A proposal to this effect was approved by the MCD Standing Committee this past week and would now be tabled in the MCD House meeting later this month.

Under the new proposal, interested RWAs and non-government organisations would be entitled to Rs.6,000 per acre per month for developing parks in their locality. “The scheme first introduced in 2005 was a failure as it had too many riders including non-payment of advances but now apart from allowing advance payment we have also simplified the administrative procedures involved in the scheme’s implementation ,” said a civic body official.

“Also under the earlier scheme once the park was handed over to the RWA it was their responsibility to develop it, but now we have removed the shortcomings under the revised PPP scheme as we would be partnering with the RWAs in the work undertaken. After every five months from signing of the agreement an inspection of parks would be carried out by the horticulture department and a detailed report would be submitted to the MCD Commissioner,” he added.
